I have worked with machinery all my working life. I have operated many types of machines from cranes, forklifts, earthmoving machines, excavators and the like. My extensive experience in this area led me to be involved in training and assessment as I could see as an operator that people around me needed training and accreditation to keep themselves and everyone around them safe.
I have always had a passion for training and wanted to impart my knowledge and skill to others to help them achieve their goals, whether it be to achieve a licence, gain further skills for their own careers or upgrade their existing skill and knowledge base on the machines they were already operating.
As the owner of Australian Easy Train Pty Ltd, I have always tried to improve our very own training facility so that it meets changing legislation and worksafe standards. An example of this is having 400 sq metres required to conduct forklift assessments. Our clientele is nationwide and we pride ourselves on the training and assessment we conduct as it’s people’s livelihood we are dealing with when they operate machinery, this is why it is so important that they receive accredited, controlled training in a purpose built facility.

As a young man completing my apprenticeship in carpentry/joinery I gained experience working with forklifts, the movement of load, progressing onto the vehicle loading cranes and dogging loads.
Whilst working on different sites I was exposed to basic intermediate rigging concepts which eventually led on to using mobile cranes and tower cranes. Throughout my experiences I found myself wanting to learn as much as I could so I could pass that knowledge and skill on to people whom didn’t have it, or didn’t have it to extent I felt was necessary.
These experience led me to become an assessor with Australian Easy Train Pty Ltd, with over 15 years experience. As an accredited assessor I have been conducting training and assessment in forklift, stock picker, elevated work platform, dogging, basic and intermediate rigging, and all cranes and crane operations.
The best aspect of my role as an assessor is being able to guide, motivate, train and develop skills, knowledge and experience for those whom want to improve their existing skills, gain new skills set or look for gainful employment in tha area.
